Kings Park celebrated World Environment Day on June 5 with the opening of the new eco-friendly Kings Park Education Centre.
The environmentally friendly building is designed with several sustainability features and is located off Fraser Avenue, embedded into the ground and surrounded by a new native garden. An earth covered roof will help to camouflage the building and act as a thermal insulator to keep the interior cool during the summer and warm in winter.
The centre completes Kings Park’s Education Zone, together with unique outdoor classrooms and a large community shelter in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park, launched in October 2011.
Kings Park Education offers three core learning strands – Habitats and Ecosystems, Plants for Life and People and Place. A suite of over 30 curriculum linked, tailored programs have been designed for students K – 12. Tertiary and adult education programs are also offered, especially during the annual Kings Park Festival.
